In an effort to systematically ensure that nursing students have the information literacy skills they need to succeed as healthcare professionals, instruction librarians and faculty members at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, are collaborating in designing a tiered approach to building student research skills, year by year. A series of information literacy competencies for the nursing field was agreed upon, and required courses throughout the undergraduate and graduate programs were targeted as appropriate points for instruction in these competencies. A description of the faculty‐librarian collaborative process which integrated this instruction into Nursing 605 is described, along with information about the Web‐based introductory graduate course.
